Summer Lovin’ – Floral Blazer, White Shirt & Emerald Skirt

Hi Everyone,

WOW!

I can’t believe it has been five months since my last post. What can I say, life just got in the way and blogging was thrown on the back burner. At the end of the day, blogging is my hobby and unfortunately I have not prioritized it well.

I am happy to share that I am currently employed and doing the job I love. Over the past five months, it has been difficult to balance work, school, family and friends since I have been working almost everyday. As it is approaching holiday season, I have countless special occasions coming up and I only thought it was right to share my outfits/ideas on my blog.

I had taken these photo months ago but did not want to post them without writing anything to accompany it.

I absolutely LOVE this skirt!

I can’t remember if I posted about it previously on my blog but it is a favorite.

High wasited skirts are so flattering and I believe they make me look slim. And who doesn’t want to look and feel skinny?

A white shirt like mentioned on numerous occasions is a MUST HAVE! It would be an understatement if I say it goes with everything. When wearing a collared shirt, a statement and extravagant necklace turn your outfit from day wear to evening wear in seconds.

    Blazers

If it was up to me I would wear them every day. If you have been following my blog from the start, you will know that once the word ‘Blazer’ is mentioned, my heart skips a beat. I have provided the links to my previous posts about this amazing clothing type.

Bags with double straps are the new thing. FINALLY!

Use the small straps for an elegant look and if in a rush, throw over the long straps  and run. Well that’s what happens to me.

P.S. As you can tell, most of my wardrobe is from the second hand store. I am looking into doing a post about tips and tricks to shopping at an Op shop. If you have any questions, leave them in comments!

Op Shop Chic – Vintage Sweater & Red Coat

Hi Everyone!

A couple weeks ago I was able to work with my beautiful friend Summy who is currently in the process of finishing her photography course. This was a great opportunity for her to get some experience with lighting, camera angles and finding locations to run future photo shoots. Likewise, I was given the chance to put a few outfits together and receive the photos for my blog.

Summy’s Photography Page

Fortunately, I was given a couple days notice before this photo shoot. This gave me the opportunity to put together some outfits that would not only photograph wonderfully but also go along with my theme. You have probably seen from the title that this outfit is predominantly from the Op Shop. For those of you who have never heard of the terms Op Shop, it is basically referring to a charity shop or thrift store.

Op Shops are not only cheap but also allow you to wear one-off pieces and the chances of you running into someone with the same outfit/clothing is quite slim. My style is occasionally quirky, sometimes extravagant and most of the time simple. And lets just say that all my styles are catered for when I shop at Op Shops. I am not in any way ashamed about the second hand shenanigans. As long as you give the items a thorough clean and avoid buying specific items such as jeans.

Over-sized white shirts and crop sweaters are the best. They are so versatile, if you change either the the jumper or shirt it basically transforms the outfit. The current jumper that I am wearing is not a crop, I just folded it up. *QUICK TIP*

Ahhhh!  Can we just admire these pants and how slim they are? I absolutely love them and would wear them everyday if I could because they are so flattering.

Black-Elegant-Comfortable

These should be the words used to describe at least one pair of shoes in ones wardrobe. These shoes are timeless. They are suede and just tie everything together in this outfit.

Special thank you to my lovely friend Summy for these amazing snaps!

You should all follow her page (linked above) for spectacular and original photographs.

I loved putting this outfit together and would love to continue this series of Op Shop Chic.
